Connie W.United States
Highly recommend Darwin. He was very knowledgeable, courteous, and made our tour very memorable. He took us to all the highlights of Victoria and Butchart Gardens. I assumed he would just leave us at the gardens, but he actually came inside to point out different parts of the Garden so we would not miss seeing them. He exceeded our expectations. There were six of us on this tour, and we all would recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Connie, It was a real pleasure showing your group around. I had a great time with all of you. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a kind review. All the best! Darwin

Martin KatzUnited States
Darwin couldn't have been better. Our group of 5 had 3 elderly people (one with walking difficulties) and 2 younger folks who are active and not challenged in any way. He dealt with this combination expertly, making sure everyone remained comfortable, engaged, and cared for. This was not the easiest challenge in the world, and Darwin handled it without dropping a beat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Martin, Thanks for the kind feedback. You put together a wonderful group, and it was my pleasure to show everyone our wonderful sights. Thanks again for choosing me as your guide for your experience in Victoria.. All the best! Darwin

Randall NishimiUnited States
Darwin was great in all aspects. Very accommodating, very professional, very knowledgeable. He was able to customize our time in Victoria "on the fly". His suggestion for a winery visit and lunch was especially on point. Beautifully clean and spacious small motor coach with a great audio system, seated our group of 8 with plenty of room to spare. Large enough to be comfortable, but small enough to go places the larger coaches cannot get into.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Randall, Thank you very much for the kind detailed review. I had a wonderful time with your group. You guys were open to some fun and you flexibility with the schedule made out for a great day. I hope we all get to meet again one day! Darwin

Our tour guide Darwin picked us on time, he took us on back roads to Buchart Gardens, Explained what to see and what to do, Took us to local Red Barn sandwich shop. Went an extra mile to show us the city, took great pictures. We had an amazing time. Though I had paid through credit card to the company, I forgot and paid again. He came back and told me already I had paid and returned my money. I really appreciate the honesty and the service. Thank you Darwin.

Judy M.United States
Awesome tour. Had been to Victoria on cruises a couple of other times and did walking tours and ship excursion.....there is no comparison. We saw more of Victoria that we had imagined and Darwin was an excellent guide. Had great suggestions and took us places we never could have seen on a ship excursion. Highly recommend.
